Sorry for the break in the action, gang, but I’ve had an issue with my WordPress 3.0 update.

Specifically, I was getting an “Internal Server Error – 500” message every time I tried to post a new entry or access parts of the WordPress dashboard. I really thought it was something on 1and1’s end, server-wise.

After doing some digging, and some reading, I found the issue was an obscure addition to the .htaccess file.

I can now support Kevin Bagg’s fix for the issue. Everything’s clear-sailing now.

Drop any ideas in the comments. I appreciate it.

Update: Except that now, when I got to post something or upload an image, I get this gibberish:
